Today's blossom is from our indoor garden. This plant has been here six or more years now and continues to delight us with blossoms from time to time.
The beauty of Mother Nature.
Yesterday afternoon I was scanning cable channels while on (what I thought would be) a short break from other activities around the house.
I landed on the King and I and was immediately engrossed in this wonderful old movie. I ended up watching all of it while knitting. It's amazing how much knitting and crocheting I get accomplished when there is something really good on TV.
I especially enjoyed the rendition of Uncle Tom's Cabin in the movie. Author Harriet Beecher Stowe lived in Cincinnati and her home is now a museum. It is just a few blocks from our home.
What a small world....
The Pink Roses are finally in bloom!
Each season I hope to see these pretty blossoms again and I was not disappointed this year.
It took all the way until Fall, but, here they are!
The wind was blowing so hard that I had to hold this blossom still to take a picture of it. We've had the reds and oranges in bloom, now the yellows are opening up to delight us.
It seems the cooler weather arrived just in time for Fall on the calendar. I just love these cool nights and much cooler days than we had just last week.
All the best,
It's early for St. Patrick's Day, but the pups are enjoying their new learning toy. Catherine brought this one home two days ago and the pups have been playing with it ever since.
Of course, we doggie parents spend a lot of time putting the toys back into the hat for them.
This is fun!
We have one clump of what my Mom called "Live Forevers." The ancestors of this plant came from my son Don's home probably 30 years ago when he was moving flowers in his garden. I propagated the small clump I received from him and grew rows of them beside my maim walkway. Then I decided to put something else in their spot so I moved them.
It is fun to live on the same property for many years and have a history with the plants here.
Within the next couple of weeks, these blossoms will be covered with bees enjoying these late summer flowers.
All the best,
I sat down on the bed to take a phone call and Elsa climbed up next to me. She put her head on my leg and immediately fell asleep.
Elsa is surely the most cuddly dog we have ever had. What a pleasure!
She just makes my day.
